Hi sisters--
Just checking in to say hello..
Went to see my therapist today. Wants me to re-read The Courage To Heal book.. now if I can only find it.. probably buried somewhere collecting dust...
I just want to thank you all for listening and being here when I have needed it the most.

I think I will have to read the book again and I also went out to buy the workbook because I know that my past is connected to my current situation..

GG--
Here is something funny-- Jake was home from school today because he wasn't feeling well. I had to take him out and on our way we stopped at Dunkin Doughnuts -- coffee for me and he wanted a chocolate stick. Afterwards he said that Dunkin Doughnuts is CHEAP.. $5 for one chocolate doughnut at Sloppy Joe's...

Survivors, yes that's exactly right. The only thing I haven't failed at.....being a survivor. I like the way you think GG. I'm sorry you were worried bout me but I appreciate being thought of and worried about.

YES... WE ARE ALL SURVIVORS!!!!!

I told my therapist that the guy that molested me when i was young came into the store that I work at and had the f'ing nerve to get into my line.. I was so full of misery.. could not look him in the eye and I did not have his hands touch mine at all... made him put down the money .. would not reach for the money...

grrrrr.... this was in February...

and here is a confession: his occupation..... chiropractor

need, be careful on paltalk...you are vulnerable...be careful what rooms you enter, okay...think there are coda meetings on Tues. and maybe Fri.nites..not sure...just be careful...use a nickname,,,don't tell me...you can't...anonymous, okay??? I am serious,,,and DON'T go get an online boyfriend either!!! LOL

Tell me when you start the courage to heal book/workbook...Mich needs to do it with us...I just don't know need if I can yet...it really upset me...but like I said, I had no support...

MICH, WHERE ARE YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I will be careful... and definitely no on-line boyfriend for me... that is why i feel so safe here.. and do not go into any chat rooms.. but I wanted to check it out...got so spooked out today though.. went into a room with only one guy there.. the only person there... anyway, I did not have the sound up on my computer and I texed hello.. first time here..and did not get a response... so then I turned up the sound and i got so scared GG... I jumped..because I heard him say "can you hear me? hello..." so i ran out of the room and that is when I posted here for you... was proud of myself for doing it so I could go to the coda meetings but it was SPOOKY
